Originally bred in Florida and introduced in 2003 by Vincent Sapp from Tomato Grower’s Supply. Although not an old world strain, this open pollinated strain has become very popular among tomato growers and rarely makes it from the plant to the house before being gobbled up. This indeterminate cherry tomato yields large amounts of sweet, rich, intense black tomato tasting 1″ fruits all season long.

Growing Directions

Sow seeds 1/4″ deep, indoors 4-5 weeks before last frost. Transplant or sow directly outdoors 2-3′ apart in full sun when ground is warm and all chance of frost has past. Plants will benefit from an organic fertilizer.
